Rocket Mix Snapdragon

There isn't a more impressive flower you can grow in your garden than a big, tall snapdragon. Rocket is the class act for 2 ½’  to 3’ snaps. Indeed most, if not all of these varieties, were All-American Winners. The bloom is very bushy and the more you cut them, the more spikes they produce. An excellent cut flower. Colors included bronze, white, pink, orchid, cherry, lemon, and red.
